It is an exciting time to be joining NAISAK, as we are finalising the completion of a new purpose-built building with 16 classrooms, 5 of which are labs, swimming pool and sports facilities. We have a new philosophy towards our curricula involving a concept-based approach through the IMYC and we are re-evaluating the way in which we develop literacy skills.
